Hi there
another interesting one was a program called "The Last One" -- which was an early interpreter based on BASIC -- it made the market by advertising itself as You'd NEVER need to write a program again.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_One_(software)

I remember also text based 1-2-3 on a DOS Novell Lan -- what a pain that was -- and when we finally got a Windows Lan with EXCEL for Windows -- Windows 3.0 and Windows 3.11 -- windows for workgroups) what a relevation we thought that was.

Anybody finding problems with Windows 7 or W8 really have it EASY compared to what we had to do back then.

Cheers

I was running a Netware 2.4 server with Excel on Windows - that was fun

Those were the days Jimbo - back in the 70s running RPG on an IBM System/32. Ha, ha, ha.

My first job out of school was at an accounting firm with an IBM 360/20 writing in RPG and Assembler. It was all card and paper tape input on a machine with 16KB of memory. The compiler was even in cards. A year later they brought in three disk drives about the size of dishwashers and bumped the memory up to 24KB. Man, we thought we were in heaven. How could we possibly run out of memory or use all that disk space? And ISAM files were magic!

If I go right back to the dark ages, the first programming I ever did was on an IBM 6400 accounting machine - one of the first to use transistors (which were on SMS cards and very indiscrete). The memory was 1Kb core storage (remember those little donuts?), and programming was through a patchboard, a bit like an old-fashioned telephone exchange. External storage was on magnetic striped A4 cards.

Yep, we had one of those in school. The boards had an input, calcs and output section. All those character rails raising at all different heights then Ka-Chunk! Printed about one line per second on a simple list. Or about a page a minute on green-bar. Nasty machine. Don't miss it.

IE10 was pushed in Windows Update today, black Tuesday. I hid the update.

I used the IE 10 Blocker Tool:

Download Toolkit to Disable Automatic Delivery of Internet Explorer 10 from Official Microsoft Download Center

It will not even permit you to download it.
